USB lan server for programming

Hi,

I have bought the TP-LINK TL-PS310U usb server over LAN.

I have an adruino working as Home Automation and it's near a Router. The idea was to use a conversor conected to the USB port of the arduino and the Router, in order to simulate a USB conection between whatever computer and the arduino.

I want to program my arduino with whatever PC I have in the house (and maybe over Internet).

The problem is that what I have bought doesn't work and doesn't recognize the arduino.

Do you know any USB port server over LAN which works with arduino?

THanks in advance!

Any idea?

Has anyone tried something like this?

What is this "conversor" you are talking about?

The connection would be:

Arduino <— usb cable —> USB server <— ethernet —> Router <— PC

I would use the drivers of the USB server in order to connect my PC through a virtual COM to the Arduino and program it from whatever point of my house.

Do anyone know what is the protocol used to program the Arduino from a PC??

avrdude.exe does the work. You can get the source code and determine the protocol from that.

I meant the generic protocol (USB storage, USB webcam...), I suppose Arduino will use a standard protocol, isn't it?. If not, Will it be possible to use a USB server that recognizes it?

You might want to take a look at this. http://www.coolgear.com/adapters/industrial-usb-2-0-ip-network-4-port-hub-share-usb-device-tcpip-network.html

I have no idea whether it will work with the Arduino but I used a Coolgear IP / USB hub to connect up to a set of scales and bar code scanner to an epos system once.

Gearmo are advertising a similar, less expensive device but I have no experience with them, at all. http://www.gearmo.com/shop/gm-asd-102/

Take a look at the Arduino Yun. You can program it via WiFi or orwired LAN
